These Bory 1 crystals (colored with nickel, iron and cobalt) were grown with the same target temperatures as those in the holding pattern 2, but rather than going to a temperature as fast as possible, the kiln was instructed to get to each temperature (whether going up or down) at a rate of 100° per hour.
